The wedding week: Part 2– sharing Lajuma

1 Comment

When we got back from Kruger we had five days with our friends and families at Lajuma before the wedding. It allowed us to share Lajuma with our guests, and our friends all became quite close before the wedding which was great. It definitely wasn’t one of those awkward weddings where everyone makes desperate small talk.

We had a lot of braais, mainly at our tent. Tom would sneak around in the bushes taking amazing photos such as the ones below. We also tried to watch Bushy the bushbaby but a combination of people falling asleep, Sally A walking up to the tree by accident, and tea making meant that a viewing wasn’t on the cards.




We put our guests to work with wedding preparations. Lantern filling, tin can stringing, dirt funnelling, and teak seed threading were some of the activities. Everyone helped with bottling the Beerly Beloved home brew. Tom and Sally attached the labels on the day I nearly conducted a massacre in Home Affairs because two days before the wedding they still didn’t know if they would marry us.






Chloe and Pete threw us surprise hen and stag parties. The hen night was amazing with classic games like pin the cucumber on the hunk and make a wedding dress from loo roll. The morning after was less amazing.




Sam took our friends and family on lots of hikes, swims, and let them try out the quad bike.

  1. Fascinating blog! Is your theme custom made or did you download it from somewhere?
    A theme like yours with a few simple adjustements would really make my blog jump out.
    Please let me know where you got your design. Thank you
